Radisson Collection launches immersive botanical art exhibition at newly opened Milan hotel as part of the global Art Series

As part of the brand’s continuing global Art Series, Radisson Collection has announced the launch of an immersive botanical art installation at the recently opened Radisson Collection Hotel, Santa Sofia Milan, in collaboration with its newest art partner, Studio Mary Lennox.

Installed for the hotel’s grand opening event last week, the exhibition is the latest in the Radisson Collection global Art Series, an ongoing series of collaborations with emerging contemporary artists to create immersive artwork highlighting iconic travel destinations aimed at enriching the guest experience.

Known for dramatic floral and botanical styling from collaborations with luxury brands like Loro Piana, Rimowa, Gucci, Mercedes and many more, Studio Mary Lennox was invited to create artistic interventions across the ground floor of the new Radisson Collection Hotel, Santa Sofia Milan, as a tribute to Milan’s botanical urban landscape as well as its rich design scene.

Incorporating the architectural styling of the hotel’s spaces, the exhibition takes inspiration from Milan’s colorful stained-glass windows and local florals.

The artwork features pressed and dried specimens of flowers and plants such as wisteria, garden rose, jasmine, daisies and clematis to name a few, commonly found around the city’s gardens and parks. The ceiling skylights of the ground floor bar are decorated with a gestural “fresco” style pattern, featuring wild compositions of pressed florals and greenery. Together with the natural light, the pressed flower installations create a dance of light and floral shadows that evolves from dawn to dusk.

The exhibition extends from the hotel lobby into the hotel’s Sofia Kitchen & Bar and will be in place for the next 6 months for guests and locals alike to enjoy.

The art installation was created to celebrate the recent opening of Radisson Collection Hotel, Santa Sofia Milan. The hotel features 159 guest rooms and suites in a newly renovated building knows as a 1960s landmark in the city. The building was originally the headquarters of Allianz Italy and maintains the original trachyte-clad façade and a characteristic oxidized copper pitch roof with an entirely transformed interior decorated in an aesthetic of elegant maximalism inspired by classic Milanese mansions.

Radisson Collection Hotel, Santa Sofia Milan is the fifth hotel of the luxury lifestyle brand in Italy and benefits from a central Milan location halfway between Piazza del Duomo and the famous Navigli canal district.
